Theatre: Hostage Song

Posted by Caroline Lofts

The Finborough theatre never shies away from innovative and pioneering productions which means that once again we have an opportunity to witness something just a little more magical than usual right on our doorstep.

With an entirely fresh take on musical theatre Hostage Song is a subversive, high-velocity Off-Off Broadway indie rock musical from New York artists Clay McLeod Chapman and Kyle Jarrow.

In an unspecified time and place, Jim and Jennifer are hostages, blindfolded and awaiting their fate. In an effort to distract themselves from their inevitable demise, they forge a relationship while trying to let go of the images of their loved ones. As the reality of their predicament becomes clearer, the fantasy becomes more vivid. Stunning rock music propels the story forward as the two take refuge in music, memory and each other, grappling in the dark for the last bit of love they will ever know.
